Mentor Coaching and Coaching Supervision
Mentor Coaching involves the mentee (i.e. internal coach) being coached by a very experienced and qualified mentor coach on their coaching skills rather than on practice building, life balance, or other topics.
The ICF (International Coach Federation) defines Mentor Coaching as providing professional assistance in achieving and demonstrating the levels of coaching competency demanded by the desired ICF credential level sought by a mentee.
Once internal or external coaches have received coach training, such as our Coaching Skills for Internal Coaches, gaining the support of an experienced and trained Mentor Coach can really expand and accelerate their coaching skills aligned with the 11 Core Competencies of the ICF.

The purpose of coaching supervision is for internal or external coaches to discuss their work in confidence in order to ensure and develop the effectiveness and value of their client work.
Coaching supervision is an important resource for a coach to maintain excellence in the coaching process.
It provides a place for the coach to reflect on their work from a unique perspective with the guidance of a trained supervisor. The coach can:
- Explore, expand, and improve the various skills within the craft of coaching.
- Address any ethical dilemmas and ensure ethical standards are maintained.
- Gain alternative views and different approaches to coaching the client.
- Enjoy a confidential, supportive, and reflective setting in which to examine and address potential client conflict and to receive feedback.
- Support your internal coaching program and maximize results with a certified coach supervisor.
